2022 Conference Highlights

NBWA’s Next Generation Group and its conference have grown exponentially over the last decade: The inaugural event was held in Chicago, Illinois in 2013 with only 50 attendees and one speaker. On its 10th anniversary, the Next Generation Success in Leadership Conference welcomed nearly five times as many attendees and close to 30 speakers.

“Strengthening bonds between industry peers, providing emerging leaders with development skills to thrive, and creating more diverse industry leaders was the impetus behind starting the Next Generation group ten years ago. Believe it or not, starting the group was a risk. We were not sure if anyone would embrace the idea. Now, I cannot imagine the NBWA without it. Founding the group and being its first chairperson gives me great pride. I am confident that the Next Generation group will continue to propel this great industry forward,” said Adam Vitale, President of G & M Distributors, Inc. and past Next Generation Group Chair.
